a classified war using the joint special operations command. it was not coordinated through the pentagon, not through the c.i.a. they essentially went out there, these groups of guys went out. there were targeted kills. what they did was they really stirred up a hornet's nest. >>gretchen: part of the problem was was qaddafi was working with the united states at the time of his demise. people didn't like him because he was a ruthless dictator. but he had turned andg the unit. when he was taken out, the rebel groups coming together were not necessarily all good guys. part of this book is alleging, there was a secret covert mission by the united states hand-picking each these people, and maybe that's why we haven't heard the full story about benghazi. at least that's what this 80-page book is saying. >>brian: can you imagine not telling the c.i.a. director that you're assassinating al qaeda. can you imagine not telling the ambassador. why would he be driving around the country at all basically armed without an armored car and a huge cadre of security officials if he knew that al qaeda was g
the military and i wonder if those people standing behind them are from the pentagon. i don't want anybody to lose their job. but it is interesting that the comments did focus on the members of military. >> brian: $85 billion and $1.2 trillion in the next ten years and half of that money comes out the have the pentagon. i think republicans agreed with it but this is thrust postpone us. it was over a year we knew about at the questions terrify. why weren't we negotiating through december and then you have january and here we are couple weeks away and the president is going with this shame attack followed by speaker boehner, your solution to get us to raise taxes after we agreed to raise taxes. now, they say the rich have to pay their fair share again. maybe we should focus on facebook who paid no money in taxes last year or g.e. who did exactly the same thing. >> gretchen: it works last time. shaming the republicans worked. they decided to raise taxes and in the public image and public opinion it worked last time to blame reopens. why wouldn't you try it again? a lot of people say like a ca
out of federal programs and the pentagon. 800,000 civilian employees have been told by the defense department that they will likely be placed on unpaid leave. with the house and senate still in recess, a number of democrats are calling for congress to reconvene to deal with this mess. secretary of state john kerry, meanwhi meanwhile, is reminding his former colleagues that actions here at home do have global implications. take a listen. >> it is often said that we cannot be strong at home if we're not strong in the world. but in these days of a looming budget sequester that everyone actually wants to avoid, or most, we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home. my credibility is a diplomat, working to help other countries create order is strongest when america, at last, puts its own fiscal house in order. and that has to be now. let's reach a responsible agreement that prevents these senseless consults. let's not lose this opportunity because of politics. >> you know, mike barnicle, politics is such a cruel, cruel game. seriously. there's one guy that gets to the to
, when it comes to cuts, maybe it's not as bad as the pentagon and others are warning. because he says republicans should argue that overall defense spending is still on the rise. now, cornyn admits that this is even a change for him. help said he would listen to leon panetta and others say these across the board spending cuts would be devastating. but he says he looked into it and he decided the best message for himself and other republicans, and of course this is the number two senate republican, is to say, you know what, maybe it's not going to be that bad. but as you well know, wolf, arguing that any cuts in military spending is an anthem ma to most republicans so i would imagine he's going to get some backlash on that messaging when he talks to republicans about it tomorrow. >> when it comes to gop legislation to prevent the negative impact from the sequester, what are you hearing, what's going on? >> reporter: what's going on right now is there is sort of the leading idea among senate republicans for a proposal that they will probably vote on this week. is to give the president f
out of the defense department on sequester and taken them to other places in the pentagon where fat could be cut. stand up and be counted. put solutions on the table and we can cut spending and preserve defense capability. >>gretchen: there were governors on the talk shows yesterday, bipartisan support for what you're saying from governor o'malley and virginia's governor mcdonnell. let me ask you what you think the world reaction is to watching the united states, the biggest superpower in the world, talking so drastically about cuts to the pentagon and the military? >> the world sees yet another signal that america already has and will have to pull back from its obligations. enemies see weakness. allies see the potential for jumping back and forth on obligations to allies. i think they see equivocation, weakness and they wonder where america is going to be in its role in the world. that foments more violence which makes defense more necessary. >>gretchen: let's see what happens. deadline coming up this friday. coming up, he fought the president on unions and won. now governor walker
. a rough ride for president obama's pick to run the pentagon. what former senator chuck hagel said that have many people no longer worried about his views but his competence. >>steve: this is your pilot sleeping. the veteran pilot who was supposed to land that airplane passed out behind the control is what happened. we did wind up scrambling a fire truck if that tells you anything. let's go down to brian kilmeade at the super bowl. i know it's a special day if he gives me an introduction to the cold open. i'm awake now but it was an extremely late night. my trip to bourbon street. >> nowhere on bourbon street would you find santa claus partying. >>brian: that's an interesting hat. i will not be bringing it back. the real nfl experience live from new orleans. that's where we are.
